The Sunday Times has become the latest organisation to name Stroud's weekly farmers' market as one of the best in the UK.
Glos Live reported on the news, listing some of the fresh food stalls, and gave College Green a mention too - fabulous!
In the Times article, author Lucy Perrin says:
"The big name of the bunch is this Stroud favourite: a regular on cooking shows and the inspiration behind the novel Paradise Fields, the tale of a woman who tries to save a local market. You’ll be inspired to do the same after dipping into the 50 stalls wobbling under the weight of Gloucestershire specialities. Try the orchard-fresh apple juice and fill a bag with just-ripe purple plums (Saturdays, 9am-2pm; fresh-n-local.co.uk). Make a weekend of it with a stay at Burleigh Court, where you can wander hidden pathways laced with terraces, ponds and pools."
Stroud Farmers' Market runs every Saturday, from 9am until 2pm.
College Green is there every fourth Saturday, so I'll be there next on Saturday 22 April.
If you can't make it, everything is available on line, with local pickup available for customers who live nearby.
